Bring the whole crew to Paris next fall and winter — we just found tons of business class award space from several U.S. airports.
Here’s your chance to burn your points to fly comfortably in lie-flat seats and enjoy a glass of Champagne (or 2) for less than 50,000 points per person.
Let’s dive in!
Award Deal — Details
When it comes to business class seats, planning early can help you book enough seats for the entire family.
Air France added dozens of business class seats — both to and from Paris — for next fall or early winter. Whether planning a Thanksgiving trip to Europe or a Christmas market tour, you can take advantage of this business class deal with points.
- Class: Business
- Route: Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Detroit (DTW), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), Newark (EWR), and Washington, D.C. (IAD) to Paris (CDG)
- Cost: 48,500 points and $280.20 in taxes & fees
- Travel Dates: October 2024 through January 2025
- Award Seats: Up to 9 passengers per route
How To Book
There are dozens of dates available, so you’ll want to play around until you find the lowest points rate possible.
If you choose to book through Virgin, you’ll redeem 48,500 points and pay ~$280 in taxes & fees.
Meanwhile, Flying Blue charges a slightly higher rate of 50,000 points but less for taxes & fees at ~$204 per person — so the tradeoff is deciding whether you want to pay more in points or hard-earned cash.
Regardless, it’s incredibly easy to earn points with either program. You can transfer your Amex points, Bilt Rewards points, Capital One miles, Citi ThankYou Points, and Chase Ultimate Rewards points at a 1:1 ratio.Hot Tip:
Amex Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards are 2 of our favorite transferable point programs since points are valued at 2.2 cents and 2.0 cents apiece, respectively. Check out our favorite Amex cards and Chase cards so you have plenty of points ready the next time a great award flight deal pops up.
Air France will often dump a bunch of business class award seats throughout the year. This time, there’s excellent availability to Paris at the end of 2024 and early 2025. You’ll definitely want to hop on this deal before the availability is gone!
